Erie County donates sobriety checkpoint trailer to state police

Erie County officials Tuesday presented state police with a new sobriety checkpoint trailer.

The 10-foot, tow-behind trailer, which was purchased with $4,000 in DWI fine revenues, will be used by Troop A of the New York State Police. The trailer will be marked with Erie County STOP-DWI and NYSP logos.

“The anti-DWI partnership between Erie County and the New York State Police is critical to keeping impaired drivers off the road, catching those who do get behind the wheel, and keeping all residents safer,” said County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz.

“Especially at the holidays, we want all motorists to be aware of the dangers of drunk driving and to know that law enforcement is looking for them,” Poloncarz added.
